Masks Work. Really.

Yesterday, I linked to a piece on how coronavirus spreads through the air. Today, here's a great article on how effective masks are at capturing coronavirus particles.

It's a great explainer and yet again I'm sat here wondering why masks haven't been made mandatory in the western world or why anyone is refuting their effectiveness. If you're not going to wear it to protect others, then wear one to protect yourself.

Raspberry Pi 400

The Raspberry Pi has always fascinated me and it's extremely accessible. I have a couple of Zeros at home, $5 computers that you can extend in a number of ways. The biggest problem I've encountered has always been around the peripherals with some keyboards and mice needing more power than is available. I've been through more power adapters and peripherals than I'd like but I have a set that work but this new offering takes all of the headache out of it.

At £67, it's an unbelievable price for a computer.

A room, a bar and a classroom: how the coronavirus is spread through the air

I saw this shared many times last week, it's an excellent visualisation of various social situations to illustrate just how quickly the virus can spread.

The modelling assumes a worst case scenario, but it's one of the best examples I've seen. As much as we miss eating out and socialising why would you bother if the risk to your health could be so high?

And why aren't masks mandatory in the UK? In all the examples, the number of infections falls by half with that one act of kindness. Until we change our habits, it's not going to get any better, is it?

Merriam Webster's Time Traveller

I was born the same year as the word 'screenshot', you can find even words were first used all the way back to 1500 and beyond.

Tracing The Neptunes' Impact

What a trip down memory lane. I've been a fan of the duo for nearly 20 years and almost everything they touch is a hit, even to this day.
